Here's one that's starting to percolate in Ashland: one of the reason that power and water rates are going up (the city owns these utilities itself) is that people heeded the call to conserve and use less.
That just doesn't sit well with some folks.
I don't think you have to spend too much time reflecting on this before it's clear that there's no trickery or bad faith a work here. This week's column tries to offer perspective before the serious shouting begins.
